I spend 10 minutes getting ready in the mornings and I'm pretty sure it shows. That doesn't usually bother me, but during a recent event honoring Iris Apfel, I actually felt that I was improperly dressed to meet with her. She is one well-accessorized woman.

This got me thinking that maybe I should spend five extra minutes in the mornings to explore different possibilities instead of pairing the same nondescript jeans with the same nondescript sweater. So, I bought the above earrings in the hopes that they will help me break out of my rut. Jewelry, unlike clothes, may not be necessary, but it does say that you put some extra thought and consideration into your look, which is perhaps  something one should do when meeting an icon like Iris Apfel.
